Default Ham and Asparagus Quiche

Same goes for this recipe. Eliminate the pie shell for low carb. Use oil
spray on pan, and change to low, no fat for cheese, milk, etc. if you
prefer. You can also divide to reduce the servings. From America's Test

The center of the quiche will be surprisingly soft when it comes out of the
oven, but the filling will continue to set (and sink somewhat) as it cools.
If the pie shell has been previously baked and cooled, place it in the
preheating oven for about five minutes to warm it, taking care that it does
not burn. Because ingredients in the variations that follow are bulkier, the
amount of custard mixture has been reduced to prevent overflowing the crust.
Snap the tough ends off the asparagus before cooking them.

Serves 8 8 asparagus spears, cut on the bias into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
3/4 cup whole milk
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
pinch fresh grated nutmeg
4 ounces deli-style baked ham , cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 9- inch partially baked pie shell (warm), baked until light
golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes, see related recipe

1. Adjust oven rack to center position and heat oven to 375 degrees.
Blanch asparagus in 1 quart salted boiling water until crisp-tender, about 2
minutes. Meanwhile, whisk all remaining ingredients except ham in medium

2. Spread asparagus and ham evenly over bottom of warm pie shell and
set shell on oven rack. Pour in custard mixture to 1/2-inch below crust rim.
Bake until lightly golden brown and a knife blade inserted about one inch
from the edge comes out clean, and center feels set but soft like gelatin,
32 to 35 minutes. Transfer quiche to rack to cool. Serve warm or at room
